Live the Life you Imagined Watercolor

I’m back again with another card with the watercolor look.  I really love this look.  I want to make more cards using the water color technique.

For this card I used different four different colors to pull of this look.  The colors I used were Stampin’ Up’s Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay.

Take a look:

Life The Life You've Imagined

I rounded the corners only on two sides of the card for balance.  I added two orange sequins to give the card an additional color.

Clean & Simple 3 Card Class – Day 2 Faux Letterpress

I’m so excited about my new card.  I had so much fun creating this card, I can’t stop smiling.

Faux Letterpress is another technique that I learned in my online card class.  Shari Carroll taught us how to create this fabulous look of  letterpress without the texture.  I used nothing but ink and it gave this faux letterpress technique a perfectly smooth one layer card.  I love it!!
